I often use baby food when my cats won't eat. I don't think there is anything bad about baby food.
Just make sure to not get onions in the food.

I read baby food labels in a grocery store recently and there were only two meat flavors that didn't have onions in the ingredients.

Bad, bad, bad. Look for all-meat baby food. It comes in several different flavors, without any additives.

Don't feed baby food for more than two or three days because it doesn't have the nutrients that are vitally important for cats.

Look for all-meat canned cat food (adult formula is fine) and make an effort to introduce your kitten to that. Your kitten desperately needs a nutritionally sound diet and that pouched junk is really not good enough. You can do better than that.

I also look for "organic" on the label when I but baby food for the cats.

My vet recommended baby-food all meat for my cat when she was having trouble adjusting to her new canned cat food. She had very loose stools and a little vomiting after eating. I was told to feed this to her for 3 days and then try the new cat food again. I bought Gerber turkey 2nd foods . It worked to settle her stomach. Now she is happily back to eating only her Wellness canned food. She did love the baby food.

The poor kitty. What kind of illness does he have? Is he at least drinking water?

Slick, PLEASE, if your kitten is at home, get him back to the vet IMMEDIATELY without a moment's delay.

And talk to the vet about a referral to s specialist NOW. If you don't do everything in your power to get your kitten to another vet there is a good chance you may lose him.

Do not try to force feed, pack up your kitten and take him back to the vet NOW! PLEASE!
